Hunter S. Thompson is driving to Las Vegas with his attorney, the Samoan, to find the dark side of the American dream. Roaring down the desert highway from Los Angeles, they realise there's only one way to go about such a perilous task - getting very, very twisted. Armed with a drug arsenal of stupendous proportions, the duo engage on a manic, surreal tour of the sleaze capital of the world. Their perilous, chemically-enhanced confrontations with casino operators, police officers and assorted Middle Americans have a hallucinatory humour and nightmare terror. Riotously funny, daringly original and dead serious at its core. 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' is a classic statement on the collapsed dream of the American sixties.
